Friday Favorites from Paper Crave, Crunchy Creamy Sweet, Oh the Lovely Things and More

Good morning and Happy Valentine's Day! I hope this morning finds you warm, cozy and with electricity. It has been said but I will say it again, this is one strange winter, and  I cannot wait until it is over. 

This week my Friday Favorites are all about friendship, love and of course Valentines day.

Paper Crave

If you are a little behind in your plans for the holiday visit Paper Crave and print a few Valentine's cards for your friends and family. Or visit Oh the Lovely Things blog for ten other last minute Valentine printable cards, banners and more. 

Molten Lave Cakes from Crunchy Creamy Sweet

I for one always enjoy an edible gift and these Molten Lava Cakes from Creamy Crunchy Sweet would be an excellent way to celebrate Valentine's Day. 

Raspberry Pavlova

If you are not a fan of chocolate (is there such a person) than this beautiful Raspberry Pavlova from Family Circle might be a better idea.

Champagne Cocktail

 A Classic Champagne Cocktail from Martha Stewart would be the perfect choice to accompany either of these scrumptious desserts.

Valentine's Day is the perfect day to celebrate love, kindness, and friendship and these stories will warm your heart.

I wish you a very Happy Valentine's Day! And a safe and happy weekend!

    Lot's of sweetness in your Friday favorite story, Elizabeth! I have yet to make a Pavlova. Chocolate and raspberries are my ultimate favorite combination!
    Happy belated Valentine's day!

  6. Hello, dearest Elizabeth! Thank you, sweet friend, for stopping by, I always love seeing a message from you.
    And what better way to spend Valentine's than with those you love, so I'm glad to know you are doing just that... :) Did you bake some chocolate yummies for the occasion?
    We had more snow today, and although it was beautiful, I, too am ready for Spring weather.
    Stay warm and cozy, dear one....
    Much love to you,
